Episode #12: How Cybersecurity Frameworks Can Help Protect Providers and Patients

Cybersecurity can be a complex topic, and that complexity seems to increase with each new vulnerability or threat identified.  How do you keep track of everything you’re supposed to do in order to protect your data, your organization, your patients?  Where do you start?  There are tools to help keep track and stay organized, and in this episode of Code Red, we’re going to talk about just one of those tools, the NIST Cybersecurity framework.  


Frameworks provide user guidance to help your organization enhance its ability to, in the language of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework:

  • Identify
  • Protect
  • Detect
  • Respond and
  • Recover

after a cybersecurity incident.  In this episode, we speak with Matthew Barrett, Program Manager, Cybersecurity Framework at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, on the ways healthcare organizations can leverage the NIST Cybersecurity Framework to help keep their health data safe.
